In March this year, the 5.5mm thin Gionee Elife S5.5 held the crown for being the slimmest smartphone in India. It is surprising how things change so quickly. The Chinese company has already announced its next model, the Gionee Elife S5.1, which is a 0.4mm slimmer. 

Gionee Elife S5.1 Summary

Shaving off a few more millimeters from its predecessor Gionee Elife S5.5, the Elife S5.1 cuts a svelte figure. Although with this anorexic body, comes a few quirks in ergonomics, low camera quality and a few performance issues. That said, the Elife S5.1 is a great option for media consumption since it has a decent screen, is lightweight and the bundled earphones sound good too.

    If your priority is a camera, then why buy a phone, just buy a camera. As for the quality of the camera, I think it is great, both front and rear. Just how much resolution do you need? The Amigo 2.0 is different and difficult to navigate, but with a few touches you can change over to normal Android and eliminate the problem. The people complaining do not want to take the time to learn this phone. I have had it a month and already my wife has stolen it from me and left her ugly Galaxy for me to use. I'm just going to go buy another one for me.
